Buildings consume about 30% of the world’s energy and account for almost 40% of annual CO2 emissions. The future of building construction and operations, both new and retrofit, is where the world will win or lose the fight against climate change.
Our Buildings of the Future vision focuses on the ingredients needed to future proof buildings and delivers better outcomes for people and the environment, and they are:
- Sustainability – In our vision, buildings of the future will be net zero-carbon by 2050. Schneider Electric offers a comprehensive, step-by-step approach to deliver net-zero buildings – from strategy and implementation, to operation, optimization, and green building certification.
- Resiliency – We will have the capacity to operate a building remotely using powerful platforms that monitor and maintain power and systems in operation while teams are reduced or off-site.
- Hyper-efficiency – Advances in technology and IoT enabled devices are empowering building owners and operators to use big data and AI to significantly lower operating costs and improve productivity.
- People-centricity – It is estimated that we spend close to 90% of our time indoors. People-centric buildings adapt to and enhance a person’s time in the building, providing a healthy, safe, and welcoming environment to live, work, and play.
At Schneider Electric, we know that buildings are where we spend most of our time – and the need to make buildings more sustainable, resilient, hyper-efficient, and people-centric has never been greater. The future must start now, and we are already helping to make that possible.
